A geochemical field barrel program to support waste planning, engineering and permitting needs at the Cerro Corona Mine, Peru

The Cerro Corona Mine in northern Peru is a copper-gold porphyry mine that began construction in 2006 and has been in operation since 2008. A field barrel program was initiated in late 2007 during construction initially to test the effectiveness of geochemical measures as outlined in the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the control of potential acid generation associated with rock excavated during mining. These measures were mainly focused on amendment of acid generating rock with acid neutralizing material in the form of limestone in order to delay the onset of acid generation. Authors: Shannon C. Shaw, Julian Misiewicz, Laura Gutierrez, Luis Alberto Sanchez. Published by InfoMine Inc. 2013.
